Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 2, 2011
Embassy Review : This is going to be a short review, as I was not there for the interview and is based on what my wife told me...

Wife and kids got to the embassy around 6:45am and there were some people there, not many. At 7:45am sharp they were aloud inside. Once inside, the people that was going fot a CR-1 Visa got in a different line then the K-1 people... then, a very nice lady told them how to organize the documents...they have to be in a specific order. My wife and kids were the very last ones for the CR-1 interviews... they left the embassy around 11:45am

Only questions she was asked, were:

Where did we meet.
How many times have I visited her?
When did we marry?

after the last question the officer said to her with a smile " your visas are approved, congratulations"

They did not ask her for any documents or pictures, even though she took about 100 pages of documents and about 40 pictures.

She said that everybody in the Embassy was very very nice, helpfull and treated everybody with smiles and respect. My wife said that she was ver nervous at the start, but that the people in the embassy were so nice that she soon was very relaxed and joking with out kids... Needless to say, my wife and I are extremely happy with the intervew proccess/service.
Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
